This is just a guess, but Mr Weir could have felt rushed and backed into a corner. No one likes that. It often makes people feel like they have to come out swinging or play defense.

If this had played out where people could have evolved an opinion over a space of weeks, I think we might have given more folks room to learn and come to a consensus rather than taking sides. But there were public accusations and alot of drama.

If this theory is right, then lets give all involved that space now.

Learn and forgive. It is worth it in the long haul. This band and this tradition are too important.

My 2 cents.

i hear you my brother. lets take a deep breath and realize that Bobby is not the Grateful Dead. The GRATEFUL Dead are everyone that has played in the band and all who have attended. dont let one 4 minute rant change what the whole thing has been about.
WHEN YOU GET CONFUSED LISTEN TO THE MUSIC PLAY

PEACE MY FRIENDS

Amen. Remember...sometimes the light is exactly where you don't expect it...in the strangest of places...but you have to "look at it right!"

Learn and Forgive I agree

But how long do you think he really to think about this- a couple of weeks or a couple of years?

All we have to come from on that is his statement, and phil's for that matter: it sounds like it came down pretty fast.

For those of us in the tape trading world this has been central for a long time, but I am guessing that these guys would much rather think about making music :)

I think in a year's time we will all get a better perspective on this whole kerfuffle, its impact, and people's considered opinions.

I would love this to die down and let that learning process take place.

Worse than I could have imagined. Bob is so full of feces it's sad. It's all about paying roylaties for the cover songs, right, Bob? So taking down the soundboards and keeping the audience recordings -- of the same performances with the same covers -- available solves that problem exactly how again?

"We had no choice." Uh-huh. "We need revenue." Praise the lord and pass the revenue; Jim Bakker would be proud. "See ya." No, actually, you won't, Bobby.

As to the point that the band owns the SBDs, I have personally witnessed people ("civilians") being patched into the board at shows. There is a principle in the law regarding apparent authority, which I believe sound technicians clearly had. If the band didn't authorize patching in, they might have done something about it over the several decades it took place. Otherwise, they were, at the least, tacitly approving it.

Poor Bobby. So busy touring with Ratdog, and yet he was forced to deal with this right before Xmas. If only Phil had that sense of responsibility.

Finally, I am not a psychiatrist, but one has to wonder about the fact that world-beloved Jerry Garcia passes, and for the first time in his life, Bob Weir decides to grow a bushy grey beard. Freud would have a field day with that one.

Hey, Bob: "I used to love you/but it's all over now." (Maybe we should censor this post, since it quotes another artist, and we know that's your primary concern!)
